Quarterback Offer Breakdown: Peyton Matocha

Quarterback Offer Breakdown: Peyton Matocha

Roman Marciante
Peyton Matocha is a 6'4" 204 dual threat quarterback from the great state of Texas. He finished his senior campaign for St Thomas (No. Not mine. The other one) just shy of 3700 yards with 35 touchdown passes and another 14 on the ground. What will this signal caller bring to new offensive coordinator Dan Enos and the Miami quarterback room? Hope you have your volume up, our clips have Audio.


Footwork/Rhythm Does not possess flawless footwork and will need to improve this area on the collegiate level. (And will) Matocha will double tap his left foot from the gun and occasionally leak multi-directionally instead of a straight line. Shows the capability of rhythm throws but excels when not in rhythm by showing confidence in using alt platform mechanics.


Accuracy Shows very good ball placement on the run and can throw the ball in the ideal catch radius. .571 Career High school completion percentage at the high school level. Arm Strength Can improve with mechanical improvements. Will not get consistently to an ideal power base position with his arm slot and will short change power as a result. Wide side out throws shows some non-linear trajectory and float. Arm strength classified as average to slightly above average with ability to improve with mechanical refinement and consistency. Arm Mechanics Will need to work on a consistent repeated delivery. Will drop arm to generate power then other times will bypass power base position all together.

Mobility Is zone read capable and shows numerous big play runs at the high school level. With modest weight gain can easily factor in the QB power concepts. Has great awareness in the pocket and senses the pressure well. Can extend the pocket naturally and shows the trait repeatedly on film.

Clips:


Off platform throw out of necessity due to linebacker pressure. Matocha shows the ability to adapt and instinctively will sacrifice "perfect mechanics" in order to deliver a strike on time.


Red Zone play with anticipation. Matocha notes the man coverage and delivers the ball once his receiver easily beats his press corner. Great ball placement for six.


Red zone play with primary read taken away. Matocha shows the ability to change quickly and throw from and alternate base once again.

Facing a blitz and pressure, Matocha takes a shot and still throws a perfect pass for the touchdown.


Roman Rank: Matocha was made a priority by coach Enos and it is easy to see why. Matocha has certain things you can't teach. His ability to sense pressure, adapt on the fly and his overall improvisational skills lead him to make plays other quarterbacks simply cannot. He is a mobile guy and he can bail out an OC in a blink. That helps. I like when my quarterback shows the ability to adapt when things can't be perfect. That includes the offensive coordinator.

Ultimately I think Matocha will need to improve mechanically. Both with his footwork and his arm slotting you see a variable nature that is in definite need of refinement. Is he a kid that falls in the howitzer class of quarterbacks that can make every throw on the field? No. But the good news is, he has the ability to improve that with a collegiate strength and development program and a proper throwing mechanic analysis. I still would say Matocha is a natural thrower of the football. This isn't something where mechanically he is dead locked with no room to improve. He most certainly can.

Former quarterback coach Jon Richt essentially said they would not take another quarterback after missing out on Michael Johnson Jr. last year. Enos understands the importance of the most important position on the field. (Sorry other position groups) You will have attrition after spring. There is absolutely no way around this one. You can see it developing from a mile away. So Matocha is the perfect candidate to improve under Enos and potentially emerge in a prime position to challenge for the starting job one day. This a current QB2 that in time can be a QB1 who shows plenty of QB1 flash potential on his current film. Rank: 3.75 stars

Love the write up. Roman Marciante found a way to hype me up even more. The more time that passes by the less likely I think Tate Martell gets the Waiver. I'm team Jarren Williams if Martell is out but with competition like this may the best man win
 
So....which QB should UM pour all of its new found resources in going forward?... Too soon?
 
can easily see other guys beating him out but i would feel pretty great if he was our backup one day

I love reading your analysis!
Dude looks the part and he definitely has some improv skills as you suggest
Lets hope he has good leadership skills and a good head onnhi shoulders - he could be really good in a year or two!!!
 
Have zero insight whatsoever, but something about me thinks Weldon is perfectly happy where he is. So that means a Perry or Williams transfer. And I'm totally agreeing there will be attrition at the spot. If it comes to to Kosi or Jarren you have to think Perry is leaving. The physical attributes don't matter if you can't keep your $#!+ together.

Question for you....what are your thoughts on decision making in general???
Based on the reel it looks as if this kid WANTS to push ball down the field. I like the aggressiveness. He has a back in the flat on MANY of these plays wide open and could be a check down Charlie if he wanted but he buys time with mobility and seems to want to get ball down the field. Do you see that as a big positive or is it questionable?
